Territory and Municipal Services are extremely cross with animal rights activists who have been digging up the mass kangaroo graves from the recent cull:
The ACT Government has today condemned the actions of protestors who have dug up a kangaroo burial site in Kama Nature Reserve and removed carcases.
The pit has now been covered with extra soil and will not be used again.
“Our rangers today found that the pit site in Kama Nature Reserve near Coppins Crossing had been discovered by protestors who have illegally accessed the site. Protestors have dug through a metre of soil capping and removed and handled carcases, presumably with the intent of spreading misinformation about how our kangaroo cull is undertaken,” said Director, Parks and Conservation, Daniel Iglesias.
“While the ACT Government respects the rights of people to protest, this action is clearly insensitive and potentially dangerous.
Daniel Iglesias should at least be glad they’re limiting themselves to digging up the dead roos and not his family members.
